It's the beginning of my pregnancy and I just feel tired. How do I keep my partner happy?

This is completely normal! I was exhausted for the entire first trimester. I assume you're talking about sex here. We tried it once and it wasn't good for either of us because I wasn't really into it. So we took a break. By 10 weeks I was feeling a lot more energetic, and my libido came back strong!

Speak to your partner, be honest, and he'll understand. Your body is going through a lot of changes, the hormones mess you up in so many ways. You should focus on self-care throughout your entire pregnancy. And your partner needs to understand it. The desire will come.
